This is an improvisational ink drawing that I turned into a Photoshop/Painter color painting. I've been meaning to paint this sort of thing on canvas or watercolor paper but haven't gotten around to it yet. I guess I'd better get cracking. ( My wife said, "Looking at this makes my stomach upset." I'm sure she meant that in a good way.)

Are you sure she was looking at the artwork when she said that?

I kid the Snider. ;)

Awesome image, my friend. You have a real knack for these nightmarish visions.
The color scheme has a Corbenesque feeling to it. It looks like something Den might fall into.

I can't wait to see some of these as paintings.

It's her reaction too most of my weirder stuff. She understands that I have to be me though.

Corben is great. I didn't think of him though, in relation to this. I can see what you mean though.

Must get painting.

Reminds me of the stuff that you would see in the old EC comics (I think that is what it was called)bizarre stuff about mutants in the sewers and mute kids.

Cool. Very cool.

This is tops Jack. The coloring is terrific. I like the title as well, very fitting.

The inking was great even before the color, but the color adds to it nicely.

Agreeing with Poet here: one of your many styles is that EC look.

Jack Snider said...

Thanks Mike. Glad you popped your head out of your burrow.
Now get back to painting!

My apologies to Poet. I posted a reply to your comment but it must have disappeared into the ether.

As you know, I am influenced by E.C., as well as Corben and Moebius and countless others. The story I think you're referring to is from an issue of "Twisted Tales"
publushed by Pacific Comics and then taken over by Eclipse. It was very cartoony and had Moebius pen hatching style art. The artist may have been Thom Enriquez.

Poet said...

Yeah, it was Twisten Tales. One of those that I read from your collection.
